The history of Polyurethan LLC

The Polyurethan LLC products are primarily intended  for outdoor enthusiasts and for those who are used to appreciate their time. This is no coincidence, because the creators of the company are just such people. And it all began that they were fond of hunting, snowmobiling and traveling in the Altai Mountains. Working in a completely different field, the future founder of the company regularly faced with the absence of goods that could make off-road trips more comfortable, would allow less frequent replacement of the damaged parts of the suspension, and moreover, do not have to do emergency repairs during the holidays.

Of course, unforeseen travel difficulties for extreme lovers are not a problem, but replacing bushes and other rubber parts was too often. Finally, information was found on spare parts with increased wear resistance made of a material called polyurethane.).

It really wanted to check as quickly as possible whether the bushings made of polyurethane would last longer. The first part – the spring sleeve – was machined on a lathe in the garage. In the same garage, this and other parts were immediately installed on the TLC SUV (Toyota Land Cruiser). Field test results exceeded expectations. Difficulties with the replacement of spring bushings are a thing of the past. They began to replace the other bushings. Experiments began with a more advanced technology – casting and manufacturing of more complex metal-reinforced parts.

Soon, on the same Toyota Land Cruiser, polyurethane was replaced with most of the rubber components, including engine mountings, bump stoppers, door sills and mudguards. Then tuning was done. Such parts were made that the manufacturer did not produce for this car. For example, the dust boots on the headlamp and a cover on the steering wheel were made. A new hobby aroused interest among friends and acquaintances. Soon, it was decided to do this more seriously. A small production site was launched and the first retail outlet opened. We began to accept applications for manufacturing from friends, acquaintances, neighbors, and colleagues. So in 2005 the Polyurethan company was appeared.
